Descanso Camellia

June 12th, 2007

“Descanso Camellia” – Approx 15 x 11″ – watercolor on paper
SOLD

This is probably the largest floral piece I’ve done so far – and I enjoyed the process very much. Essentially it’s no different from working small except I have to stand back more frequently and use larger brushes to avoid getting too many picky details.

Busy, busy. I don’t have time to write much right now – I’m up to my ears in framing and gathering materials for a new class I’ll be attending tomorrow. Plus, our son is graduating from UCLA on Saturday and we’re co-hosting a grad party for him and some of his roommates.

OK, back to work for me …

  3. Karen, WOW! Amazing! I love the pinks! Just wonderful! I was headed to Descanso today but found the tea house was closed and opted for Pasadena instead… Congrats on your son’s graduation. Holly

  7. It’s beautiful! I imagine the size must make it tempting to add details but this is so lovely and light.

  8. I would like to do watercolors this big! I am only just getting into the habit of painting with watercolor everyday. This is a lovely painting.

  9. This is just beautiful – the way you’ve captured the light is stunning! I think working big agrees with you.

  12. Karen, while your work is always absolutely beautiful, this camillia is so softly luminous that I simply had to stop and say, “Thank-you” for the deep breath of appreciation it sparked in my soul.
